Jupiter Ascending – Extended TV Spot
Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis star in “Jupiter Ascending,” an original science fiction epic adventure from filmmakers Lana and Andy Wachowski (The Matrix).
Jupiter Jones (Kunis) was born under a night sky, with signs predicting that she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning other people’s houses and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along—her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos.
Jupiter Ascending is an upcoming space opera film written, produced, and directed by The Wachowskis. It marks their first return to original screenplays in the science fiction genre since the The Matrix trilogy.
The film is centered on Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), a down-on-her-luck janitor and Caine Wise (Channing Tatum), an interplanetary warrior who informs Jones that her destiny extends beyond Earth. Supporting cast member Douglas Booth has described the film’suniverse as a cross between The Matrix and Star Wars while Kunis named its underlying themes as indulgence andconsumption.
